Service Advent Calendar for Kids

The excitement of Christmas is here! One of my favorite traditions about Christmas is doing an advent calendar. We always do fun ones with little trinkets for my kids to open but I really wanted to add another one to our home this year with more meaning. That’s when I decided to come up with a service advent calendar that is full of small acts of service that kids can do each day. These aren’t big projects at all. Small things that have them serving mostly in their own home. My hope is that it will teach kids that they can serve those they are around everyday. Service doesn’t need to be some grand gesture! The holiday season is the perfect time to teach that. I hope you enjoy this service advent calendar for kids as much as we do!

Snow Globe Ornaments Christmas Kid Craft

One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is the opportunity to make holiday crafts! I love that that love of Christmas crafting has rubbed off on my kids as well. They love doing Christmas kid crafts! One of my favorite types of holiday kid crafts are ornaments. There is something so special about pulling out handmade ornaments each year to see those little creations made by your kids! This year, we made these darling snow globe ornaments. They are the perfect Christmas kid craft! They would be so fun to do as a craft in a classroom Christmas party too.

Snowy Christmas Centerpiece

Sometimes Christmas centerpieces can be a little too extravagant for my taste. Rather than be on a constant hunt for the perfect, simple Christmas centerpiece, I decided to make my own. This snowy Christmas centerpiece is incredibly easy to make and looks so magical when the candle is lit up.

Awesome Advent Calendars Your Family Will Love!

I have always loved advent calendars. I loved having some sort of Christmas countdown that I could do each day. It made me look forward to each day, rather than just waiting impatiently for the big day to arrive. When I became a mom, that love of advent calendars continued to grow as I watched that same magic unfold with my daughter as she got to discover what was in each day of her countdown. This year, we will probably have about five advent calendars going on at the same time and I love it! I think it will be so fun! Here are some of my favorite advent calendars and DIY advent calendar ideas that I just know your family will love as much as we do!

Amazing Family Halloween Costumes

I grew up going to a church Halloween party that was always a highlight of the season. Everyone got into the Halloween spirit, but one family would steal the show every year with their themed costumes. I knew that when I had a family of my own, I wanted to have a family theme for as long as my kids would participate! As soon as I became a mom, those dreams became a reality. I LOVE family Halloween costumes!

I just love to see what families choose to be together for Halloween. You can definitely tell when the kids have a say and when the choice was mostly made by the parents. No matter who chooses, I love any family who will dress up together! I hope you get some family Halloween costume inspiration! [Read more…]

Disneyland Treats Bag

With the big reveal of our Disney treats Halloween costumes, I couldn’t let my little Dole Whip and Mickey Ice Cream Bar go trick or treating without an epic trick or treat bag! This Disneyland treats bag will be the perfect way to stay with our theme and have plenty of room for all of their Halloween treats!

These bags were so fun and easy to make! To create these bags, you need… [Read more…]

Spiderweb Pumpkins with Vinyl

I think I have made it painfully obvious that I am a huge Halloween fan. I love it! A little thing you probably didn’t know is that when I decorate for Halloween, I refuse to use anything with spiders. I hate spiders so much that I refuse to decorate with them. But I made somewhat of an exception to this rule when I visualized a pumpkin covered in beautiful colored spiderwebs. I made it a reality and I actually really love how they turned out. These spiderweb pumpkins are just made with vinyl, so they are something that anyone could recreate.

Spiderweb Pumpkins

I loved the idea of making one with gorgeous rose gold tones and having another one with black, white, and different shades of gray. They both turned out beautifully. I want to make more! To make these spiderweb pumpkins, I used… [Read more…]

Disney Food Family Costume: Disney Treats Costumes

This week has been so fun! I have finally been able to reveal all of our Disney Treats costumes! Not everyone would choose a Disney food family costume theme but I am grateful that my family did. They were all really great sports about our theme this year and were genuinely excited about it. We love Disneyland food and dressing up as our favorite Disney treats seemed like the perfect fit!

Disney Food Family Costume

The best part of all of these Disney Treats family costumes is that they are all no sew costumes. I am not a fan of sewing, so I avoid it at all costs. Our Disney food family costumes include a Mickey Ice Cream Bar costume, Dole Whip costume, Mickey Waffle costume, and a Disneyland churro costume! [Read more…]

No Sew Churro Costume: Disney Treats Costume

No Disney treats themed costumes would be complete without the infamous Disney churro! This churro costume was a lot of fun to make. This costume was by far the most planning that has had to go into a costume that I have made but it was worth it! It turned out exactly like I had planned. It didn’t require any major technical skills, just random supplies to come together to create this sugary goodness that is a Disneyland churro!

Disney Churro Costume

The great thing about this costume too is that unlike a few other renditions out there on the internet, this costume is easy to wear and can easily be removed, where it is made up of three major pieces. To create this churro costume, you need… [Read more…]
